Target Audience: This book is geared toward practicing professionals specializing in substance use disorders who are eager to gain a more expanded understanding of complementary and integrative treatment options (i.e. addictions counselors, psychologists, addictions program administrators, clinical staff and therapists, social workers, discharge planners), those planning to practice in the field of substance use treatment (i.e. health care and counseling professionals), and students from advanced undergraduate to graduate programs (i.e. Junior and Senior level undergraduates, and Master’s level students pursuing degrees in counseling, psychology, nursing, social work, and other health care professions).

Description:
With rising rates of morbidity and mortality from substance abuse, addictions and mental health professionals are called upon to integrate innovative treatment modalities that are effective in supporting health and well-being, managing stress, decreasing cravings, supporting abstinence, and addressing the mental health issues that commonly occur with substance use disorders. An approach that blends the best of conventional treatment with complementary therapies and techniques, can bring optimal health and wellness based on the unique needs, preferences, and goals of each person. This book details complementary and integrative health modalities that promote physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual health, and recommends self-care and healthy lifestyle practices for sustainable recovery from substance use disorders. These modalities were chosen based on a body of scientific research supporting their inclusion, and with a focus on the whole person, mind, body, and spirit. Practitioner delivered therapies are presented, such as Acupuncture, Healing Touch and Art Therapy. Modalities that are learned in formal treatment and then translated into personal practices after discharge, such as Meditation, Nutrition for Recovery, and Emotional Freedom Technique are reviewed. Case studies explore these modalities to illustrate applications and integration into conventional treatment. The book concludes with recommendation for self-care that can bring improved health, quality of life and vitality for long term recovery.
